May 22, 2010: More Animal Games

I just found this really cool site with some more animal games. It is called Switcheroo Zoo. You can make your own new animals, build an on-line habitat, play a “Where Do I Live?” game, sort animals by what they eat, do some animal puzzles and more. If you would like to go to the site, just click on the picture below and it will take you there. Try some of them out and let me know what you think of them.
